Don't tell them about it.

Harvey V. Fineberg
'Heroine' is about a declining and imbalanced superstar - a very brave and bold role. I wanted to test whether I could carry a role like this. I have given 200 per cent to this role. She's a very complex character, very aggressive, manipulative and bold, yet she's very fragile.
Kareena Kapoor Khan

David S. Goyer
I'm proud of the versatility I've had since I was in high school, getting in trouble for all these voices.

It got a little ridiculous.
